Own the memories, rent the flowers



Traditional vs. Modern Bride

All those picture-perfect weddings on Instagram and Pinterest may have your head-spinning. With so many choices and so many styles, you’re probably left wondering, what’s right for me?

While it’s easy to get wrapped up in the social inspiration, your wedding style should be defined by YOU and represent your unique personality as a couple. For some, that’s a trendy shindig and for others, that may mean a simple and elegant ceremony.

So what kind of wedding do you see yourselves having!? Are you leaning towards a more traditional ceremony at a beautiful grand chapel, with a white lace dress and black tie attire? Or are you considering a scaled-back intimate ceremony at the location of your first date? Either way, it’s sure to be beautiful and special in every way.

At Something Borrowed Blooms, we know all Brides are different! We work hard to deliver silk flower designs that are versatile and affordable to meet the needs of every Bride-to-Be. Offering fourteen unique floral collections covering all shades of the color spectrum, we continue to expand our line of florals.

With our most recent refresh of The Audrey Collection we took the design a step further, offering TWO styles! The end result, a traditional round nosegay bouquet and a modern hand-tied bouquet --- both equal in beauty but opposite in style. Featuring an all-white color pallet and a versatile design, The Audrey Collection fits the floral needs of SO many Brides.

Take a LOOK at the NEW Audrey Collection...

Isn’t she PERFECT? We think so too! Looking at the two styles, you should instantly be drawn to one! Our round bridal and bridesmaid bouquet appeals more to the Bride who dreams of wearing her great grandmother’s pearls on her special day, with a lace dress and soft color palette. The hand-tied bridal and bridesmaid bouquet style is for the fun and trendy Bride, who isn't afraid to make a statement, even when the colors are as simple as ivory and white.

So are you a traditional or modern bride? 

Take a look at some other traditional and modern wedding examples, which may help you define your style.


White chapels are what wedding dreams are made of and for good reason! If you're all heart eyes, find a cute little chapel and you don't need much to make it pretty! You can recreate this look with our rent and return florals. Consider using greenery garlands like the Spiral Seeded Eucalyptus and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus to create a timeless and natural look. Or our custom Audrey Garland for lush and full bloom florals. Totally swooned - You're a traditional Bride!


Details are everything when it comes to a modern wedding! If a casual venue or this simple champagne wall accented with a neon and matte black wall is singing your tune, then you're far from a traditional Bride. Recreate this champagne wall with our Wren Bridesmaid Bouquets to WOW your guests while staying in budget.

Traditional or modern --- or maybe a mix of both; pick a style and own it. After all, it is YOUR special day! For more inspiration browse our collections, and follow us on Instagram for real wedding inspo!

Summer Wedding Trends We LOVE

2020 Summer Inspiration

Summer will soon be in full swing and we are so excited for a new season! A season that we hope will blossom into positivity and new beginnings for all of us!

Millions of engaged couples have had to make the stressful decision to postpone or cancel weddings this spring (no thanks to the pandemic) and are now looking forward to rescheduled summer and fall weddings. With this downtime, many were able to gain inspiration from the very things they love most... home and family. For us, this downtime at home with our family has inspired us and brought new light to Summer 2020.

And our minds have been racing with countless summer wedding trends we absolutely love and are too good not to share!

1: Backyard Weddings

We hope backyard weddings are here to stay! The stay at home orders may have forced this on many, but it’s been a great validation that an intimate backyard ceremony can be just as beautiful and even more special than any banquet hall. And, most of us have really sharpened up our gardening skills this spring, so why not show that backyard off! 

Bring the inside outdoors, by moving some of your inside furniture outside to create beautiful lounge areas and open up your inside space for traffic to flow through. We make decor simple with affordable floral and greenery and flower rentals sure to make any space beautiful. Use our lush garland to wrap around your pergola and create the perfect archway for you and your soulmate to say “I do”. And when the sun goes down, our lanterns and votive holders will create a moody and romantic ambiance while guests roast marshmallows! 

2: Short Wedding Dresses and Jumpsuits

Okay let’s face it, Summer is H O T and who wants to wear a heavy bustled gown in the heat? Dare to trade tradition for a chic with a jumpsuit or tea-length dress. Our friends at Watters and Brideside have the most stunning dresses and flowy jumpsuits. Our top picks are below!

3: Summer Blooms

Summer is the BEST season for the most vibrant blooms. Take advantage of your backyard blooms and greenery to accent your space and cut down on your floral budget. Renting your bridal party flowers and bouquets will also save you thousands of dollars while providing an extensive selection of florals.

This summer, we are particularly loving bright, bold color palettes and our NEWEST collection, The Gemma. With pops of color from the Bougainvillea and realistic blackberries this collection is what summer weddings are made for! 

But if you're more comfortable with a neutral color palette, Magnolias and camellias are a classic white summer bloom that will bring elegance and a more traditional style to your wedding. Our Shelbie Collection offers just that.


4: Cold Treats

When you’re from Southern Louisiana like we are, snowballs and ice cream are a part of an everyday summer diet. Incorporate a D-I-Y snowball stand or rent out an ice cream truck for a fun way to keep your guests entertained and cool. You can even create your own custom flavor and make it a part of the menu. Add garland and aisle markers for cohesive elements to match your wedding colors and theme!


Best wishes to all of our Summer 2020 Brides. We can’t wait to be part of your special day. For more wedding inspiration browse our collections, and follow us on Instagram for real wedding inspo!

Just Bloomed Premiere

Top 4 Reasons to Rent Your Wedding Flowers

something borrowed blooms

It's finally here... the long-anticipated blog of Something Borrowed Blooms. It may have taken a global pandemic and a lot of unforeseen downtime to get us here, but we're super excited to launch this floral blog with the hopes of sharing industry best wedding flower advice. From floral planning, budgeting, styling, and real wedding inspiration, we have so much in store for the Bride to Be!

Naturally, our first blog topic addresses the most basic consideration of many Brides after discovering our Blooms - "Should I rent my wedding flowers?" 

At Something Borrowed Blooms, a rent & return floral boutique specializing in premium silk wedding flowers, renting wedding flowers is such an easy Y-E-S for us! We can think of a thousand reasons renting your wedding flowers makes perfect sense, but for now we'll consolidate our thoughts into our top FOUR reasons to rent.

1. It’s Budget Friendly. Traditionally, wedding flowers can be one of the most expensive aspects of a wedding. From bouquets to centerpieces and ceremony arches, a lot of blooms are needed and your favorite flowers often cost a pretty penny. If fresh flowers aren’t a major priority, consider allocating more of your wedding budget to what’s really important to you: photography and videography or even your honeymoon! Receiving your wedding flowers through Something Borrowed Blooms costs a fraction of what you can expect to spend with a traditional florist. Most Brides save up to 70%, which could be thousands of dollars in savings for you. So if you’re on a tight budget, renting is a cost-effective alternative.

3. You Know Exactly What You’re Getting. Our bouquets and centerpieces come exactly as you see them on the website: beautifully realistic and crafted from premium silk. You don’t have to worry about a florist replacing the peonies you paid for with roses at the last minute; you receive exactly what you expect. This means, no surprises on your Wedding Day!

4. You'll save time! Planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming. From setting up appointments and meeting with vendors to ensure your vision is met, planning a wedding can sometimes feel like a full-time job. By renting your wedding flowers online, the process is super easy and can be done on your own timeline! Simply browse the collections that fit your wedding theme, build your cart to fit your wedding party size and décor needs, enter your wedding date, and make a 50% deposit - DONE! It is as simple and as easy as that. Just sit back and relax, we'll ship your florals to you two days prior to your wedding date.
